Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 2 aprile 2010

London Electric scooters and motorcycles offer smart, eco-friendly and accessible mobility options for urban transportation.  Thanks to a rapidly developing re-charging infrastructure and innovative design, they have the potential to meet consumer demand and pave the way for innovative micro mobility solutions in Europe’s developing mega cities. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.automotive.frost.com), 360 Degree Analysis of the European Electric Scooters and Motorcycles Market, finds that consumer interests and technology significantly drive the market. However, electric scooters and motorcycles require greater investment and involve higher running costs than gas-powered two-wheelers. This is a concern for the consumer in terms of cost of ownership. Additionally, imports of low-quality inexpensive electric scooters from Asian markets, compete with high quality reliable electric scooters and motorcycles, vehicle manufacturers are looking to offer to European consumers. Vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and other stakeholders in the industry should look to work together towards standardising motor and battery technologies to make electric scooters and motorcycles more affordable.Technology should be standardised through a unified approach between battery suppliers, infrastructure providers and vehicle manufacturers. The government should look at promoting electric scooters and motorcycles with incentives or subsidies while vehicle manufacturers should consider new business models, such as battery leasing, to bring down initial purchase costs and battery maintenance/replacement costs for consumers.  “There is a burgeoning demand for integrated mobility and first/last mile connectivity solutions in developing urban cities and pedelecs offer an ideal solution for sustainable, eco-friendly mobility of the future,” concludes Rajagopalan.
